Developers' Training for Environmental Research
April 4–6, 2012 | Redmond, WA, United States
In this hands-on workshop, participants learned about the latest technologies from Microsoft that can help them productively share, access, consume, and present the environmental data that they use in their research. We introduced the Environmental Informatics Framework (EIF), an productive strategy for Microsoft to work with the environmental research community, and successful examples of EIF.
